It’s always a surprise for visitors to realize just how small the housing is in Hong Kong. As always in homes short on space, it’s important that apartments in the city are perfectly designed for optimum efficiency. This home tour shows how a refurbishment took a 271-square-foot (25m²) studio micro apartment from clunky to streamlined with a few simple changes.
Causeway Bay is known as one of Hong Kong‘s busiest shopping districts with shops, businesses and apartments all tumbling over one another like building blocks. It’s also fairly centrally located, so this home has so much of the city at its doorstep. With this in mind, this was the perfect spot for a serviced apartment. Bringing in design consultants G & Crew to develop the project, this home was pulled apart and reconfigured into a slick, cool and casual studio micro apartment for travelers passing by on short visits to the ‘Fragrant Harbour’.
In designing the home, they worked with NONAGON.studio to produce a few rendered ideas of what it could look like before drawing up a final design.
Modernize the Bathroom
The bathroom has received a new finish, giving it warmth and brightness. You can see how the bathroom walls have been updated with white hexagonal tiles, and an overall modern finish.
The main area of the micro apartment features a double bed. The design crew’s idea was to create a platform level where storage could easily be placed underneath. Where the bed used to be is now a space for an armchair, where visitors can relax and hang out.
The materials and colors were selected to create a spa feel. Tones maintained throughout the apartment keep the theme cool, casual and sophisticated. This goes for the bathroom, too!
The desk is designed to be tucked up against the bed area, and a large wardrobe sits in between the two, casually splitting up the space (and avoiding blocking the windows).
Know What You Need
The kitchen was not intended for heavy use, but with enough of the appliances and items needed for a short stay. One of the niftier features is the pull out table at the end of the counter.
